of victory for president obama in november. the republicans 30%. that is on trust, that is as they say in the trade a big deal. the national republican committee today issued a scathing self critique of the republican party recent failures focus groups describe republicans as narrowminded, out of touch. $1.2 billion last year in the last presidential election alone and the future of the g.o.p. understanding you can't get it done just with money. as a result, the republican national committee has decided to pour resources into its ground game targeting youth and women and hispanics and other minorities while focusing on making the party's message more inclusive and open to different views. i don't know what they paid for the study, but that is kind of vague, don't you think? he had this to say to me last year. >> we can have all the voter contact in the world, but if it is not over a long period of time, it is not going to work so what we saw was mitt romney ran a pretty good six months operation, but six months operations don't work very well against for your operations. lou: nobody ha
for republicans with obama as president and democrats in the senate to even get votes on good ideas. we are now finally getting the democrats in the senate to write a budget, 1418 days. they never wrote a budget. how did you campaign against democrats in the senate if they do not even write down what they are for? there are differences in how you structure. i think there is a lot to be learned from republican successes with governors like walker in wisconsin, who made dramatic changes on the cost of government-run pensions, the unionized government workforce, and bobby jindal with school choice. he is planning this year to abolish the corporate and individual income tax for moving in a very different direction than the national democrats and winning elections with that approach. there is a lot to learn both from the failure of the romney campaign and the senate races and the successes republicans have had in the state level. host: we are taking your calls in this segment with grover norquist, americans for tax reform. phone lines are open. grover norquist, known as an expert on some of the budg
. will charm be enough to bridge the differences in the battle of the budget? president obama reaches out to all members of congress just as house republicans and senate democrats come out with dramatically different blueprints for our fiscal future. what are the chances for a compromise? we will ask two is senators leading the debate, democrat dick durbin and republican bob corker. then, republican at a crossroads. as conservative activists gather in washington, gop leaders argue about the future of the party. we'll discuss differences within the gop with matt kibbie of freedom works and former congressman steve latourette of the republican mainstream partnership. >>> the u.s. responds to north korean threats by beefing up its missile defense as the president heads to israel. we will ask our sunday panel whether mr. obama has the right answers to foreign policy challenges around the world. and our power player of the week. a celebrity chef combines the classic with the cutting edge. all right now on "fox news sunday." >> chris: hello again and happy st. patrick's day from fox news in was
that thomas perez headed up predating the obama administration. republicans charge the decisions whether to pursue certain cases or not were politically motivated, that from senator jeff sessions, a republican from alabama, nominating mr. perez to the important post, the president placed his drive to promote his flawed immigration policies over the needs of millions unemployed americans. we need a secretary of labor who fights to create jobs for american workers, not one that undermines legal work requirements. this goes to the senate health committee, and tom harkin says perez was a voice for the most vulnerable and reenvying rate -- reinvigorated the enforcement of the most important civil rights laws. >> thank you so much. interesting story there. >> absolutely. washington trying to trim the fast, will your mortgage deduction end up on the chopping block? >> a drop in confidence, is two months a trend for a slowly recovering housing market? >> surprised to see that on home builders confidence. all right. metals headed to break, a bump in gold prices today with the news from europe, gr
] and for this vision, we have been mocked, marginalized, and maligned by president obama, nancy pelosi's, and majority leader harry reid. and people from the republican establishment, like senators john mccain and lindsey graham. our are contemptuous of vision, and our vision is distinctly different from today's reality. our country is $17 trillion in debt, and we are headed to bankruptcy. our gross domestic product shrunk, and wall street profits it. seven out of the 10 wealthiest counties in america are right here in boom town d.c. like "the hunger games." corrupted deals are standard operating procedure. yet, in the heartland, and in point is in the double digits. is in doublent digits. when obamacare is fully enacted, a million people will lose their current health insurance. bemillion people will still uninsured. have toily of four will pay $20,000 per year for the cheapest health-care plan. studies show that medicaid surgical patients today are far more likely to die than those that have no insurance at all. ae affordable care act is con. in reality, it is not affordable, callous, and cool. -- c
happened. the republicans, let's delay the sequester two months, and president obama thought the republicans were retreating. oh, good, i'm going to get my tax increase now, and the republicans are about to give up on the sequester. there was some conservatives watching from afar going, uh-oh, we're giving up. the republicans were moving the sequester from outside the blast radius of the disaster that the fiscal cliff was going to be because the president had all the power. they moved it outside. fiscal cliff happened, we moved forward, now the republicans have all the clout in the discussion about spending restraint is. >> host: we're talking with grover norquist, the president of americans for tax reform, twitter handle @tax reform. and if you want to catch up -- >> guest: oh, that's atr -- talk to me directly, @grover norquist. or both, @tax reform will get all of our press releases, @grover norquist will met you know how my children are behavioring today, as well as tax policy. >> host: wallet to get to mark on the republican line. good morning, mark. >> caller: good morn
that is not good enough for obama. >> plus, should the republican party take a different direction to attract women and minority voters? >> we need to call out the hypocrisy on the left. >> ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. >> mike: thank you very much and happy st. patrick's day weekend to everybody. i wore the tie just for the occasion. only weekend of the whole year i get to wear it so i hope you like it. welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. my first trip to israel occurred nearly 40 years ago in july 1973. just a couple of months before the yom kippur war i was a teenager at the time. i purchase a map and ask the people there to open the map and show me where israel is. israel is not on the map. interesting, isn't it? israelis are asked to make peace with the people who refuse to acknowledge their existences. israel is condemned for its construction of a security wall but until it was erected it was common for terrorists to strap bombs to their bellies, board a bus and kill innocent men, women and children. with the construction of that wall those acts of
other? 42% said obama's doing enough. only 26% said the republicans in congress, dana, are doing enough. >> right. i mean, that's actually not that surprising. but i think if you talk to many republicans in congress, like i do, one of the main reasons they say that they're not compromising is because they're sticking to their principles, and that's what their conservative base wants them to do. except, again, in this poll, if you just sort of look at what -- what we call the cross tabs, 55% of conservatives -- 55% of conservatives said that they did not think that their own republicans are compromising enough. that, to me, speaks volumes of maybe the fact that there is more of a desire among the republicans' top supporters for them to actually get things done. >> this is the problem the house speaker has. he is completely trapped. he did his fiscal cliff deal. republicans didn't like it. they know they had to kind of do it, because it raised taxes. they didn't like it. if he were to come out now and look like he's compromising and say, by the way, i'll put everything on the table, inclu
in american exceptionalism, not obama's socialist agenda. unfortunately, some in the republican establishment arewe as a movement cannot let that happen. contrary to what some in the establishment want you to win every election. we are not willing to sell out our principles for the sake of a wind. rinos will use our movement to get elected and then feign shock when conservatives call them out for bad policy. ronald reagan cemented our values with his analogy -- that conservativism stands for free enterprise, strong national defense, and pro-family social policies. if you take one leg away from the stool, the stool crumbles. if we sell out our principles then the conservative movementthose in the establishment who claim they know how to win are simply living a lie. just look at the past two presidential campaigns. how did that work out for the establishment? only in 2010, when our conservative grassroots were fully mobilized, hand in hand with the tea party did we prevail. last month the battle lines were drawn when karl rove and company announced to "the new york times," of all places, they w

to run to the left of the obama administration he is tree to ned ahat in the republican minute. maybe this is more is support for that than i think but i doubt there really is. >> chris: nina, the president thinks bringing the troops home not in a rush but steadily and eventually is a winning message in the last campaign, frankly not talking about open-ended commitments. does the gop need to recognize and respond to a war weariness in the country? >> i think the drone issue and war we areness are two totally different issues. rand paul's war and drones is a war on a pretty successful fight against terrorism right now. i'm not sure where that gets us. i agree with bill that the gop doesn't lose by being a strong party of national security. what we -- what the republicans lost were moderates new election. thin in the 56% of moderates self-described moderates went to barack obama not to the party. those are the people you need to get back. you will not do it by a drone going after drones. you will do it by not making comments about "legitimate rape or you need to appeal to single women.
is sound and fury. it's just making noise. that sums up the job president obama does today. >> the republican party has to change by going forward to the classical and timeless ideas enshrined in our constitution when we understand that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. then we'll become the dominant national party again. it's time for us to revive reagan's law. for liberty to expand government should shrink. >> i support guy doubles in an effort to advance opportunity for lgbt americans and all americans. >> michael: see, it's never too soon to talk about this. some of the really k real kooks were on display. here is senator ted cruz talking just about that. >> we did have a certain i am mans describe rand paul and me as wacko birds. i have to admit when rand and i first heard that we thought maybe that was a new kind of drone. but if standing for liberty and standing for the constitution makes you a wacko bird, then count me as a proud wacko bird. >> michael: senator, we have already counted you a wacko bird. you didn't have to ask for our vote. the c
to republicans that says obama 2.0 is still on. >> megyn: we mentioned some of the sound bites in the introduction about mr. perez from somebody who used to work at the doj. that somebody is jay christian adams, he was a do jchj attorne and he worked on the new black panthers case that mr. perez testified about earlier and an openly conservative man. mr. perez is not. so they clearly have an ideological divide between the two of them. he went on the mark levin radio show last week and had the following to say about mr. perez. >> totally lawless. this is a man for whom law is a nuisance. he brings the cases, you might remember, against school districts to allow children to dress in drag. he harasses pro-life protesters in florida where a judge awarded $120,000 in sanctions against the justice department. i mean, this is a man who is advancing a radical agenda using his power in the obama administration. >> megyn: and just to follow up, the case against the pro-life protester in florida he's right that sanctions, attorney's fees were awarded because the doj was thought to have ov
to be benefited by the policy. connell: the republicans put up a good fight for the other obama nominees. do they want to go down that road again? is it worth it? if so, why? >> chuck grassley, the senator from iowa, certainly thinks so. that's because not only does perez want to use the impact analysis, but he doesn't want the supreme court to rule on constitutionality. there was a case last year in st. paul, minnesota, a case pending before the supreme court, would have given the court a chance to take a shot at the desperate impact and whether or not it's constitutional, and there's some evidence that justice got involved and persuaded the city to withdrawal the case. i think chuck grassley wants to ask about that, and i hope the senate delves in. dagen: could be an exciting confirmation process for a labor secretary. >> deservedly so. dagen: than seen in the past. what else should they ask about perez's background? >> well, it's -- i think he's emblematic of and administration thatments to use the rule of law selectively to help some people instead of others and use statistics selectivel

[cheers and applause] folks, my favorite thing about sports is stadiums named after corporations. it's win-win. the teams get money, and the corporations get advertising that really works. i mean, going to coors field makes me crave the silver bullet. and any time i go to see the patriots play at gillette stadium, i'm as hairless as a newborn mole rat. [laughter] but i was especially pumped about the latest company to get in on the stadium naming action. >> after more than two years florida atlantic university's football stadium has a name. >> it's named after a prison company. >>it will be called geo group stadium after get this the nation's largest operator of for profit prisons. they made a $6 million donation. >> stephen: that's right. a private prison company is sponsoring a sports venue. it's like bank of america stadium only this company believes in punishment f
leaders say need fixing fast before 2016. much more this morning on the brand-new self-imposed republican autopsy. >>> meanwhile, it's another conservative clash as sarah palin ridicules karl rove's reaction to the last election. rove wastes no time firing back. >>> also today, a deep dive. previewing president obama's trip to the middle east this week. will expectations grow for a major peace plan progress before the end of his presidency? >>> good morning from port aransas, texas. >> it's monday, march 18th, 2013. this is "the daily rundown." >> now here's chuck todd! >> big thank you to maddie and noah salazar. on spring break at port aransas, texas. first reads of the morning. by the way, see the beach when it's sleeting behind me is kind of a nice little picture there. >>> right now republican party chairman reince priebus is unveiling his own autopsy of what went wrong in 2012. while the report blames the process more than gop prince ips or policy position it also admits more problems than you might expect. >> there's no one reason we lost. our message was weak. our ground game was
that was one of the areas where they recommended. and frankly, a lot of republicans are already on board with this, leading the way is marco rubio obviously and the gang of eight which is pushing for comprehensive immigration reform. jon: we've seen president obama going in for soft media interviews, "people" magazine, "the view", "the daily show" with jon stewart. republicans have to do the same thing according to this report. >> sounds a little bit frivolous but maybe it is but one of the suggestions in the report that republicans do more apearns poos on colbert report and daily show and do interviews with "us weekly." they have very serious proposals in the report. some things which may be important but sound a bit frivolous to people reading it. jon: why is that important? >> well i think it is not everyone watches fox news. not everyone watches, the evening news at night. some people read entertainment weekly and don't actually get serious hard news. some way to reach out into the culture and to the people who are not watching cable news 24 hours a day. maybe go on some of these sho
and dislike they have for republicans. a lot of it, i think republicans thought, well post-obama they would be able to talk more frankly with black people. go into these communities and neighborhoods and sort of make amends. but i think they are really underestimating the hangover of all of the disrespect. >> and the hangover of the paul ryan budget. that would disproportionately -- >> and also obama care which is amazingly popular. incredibly popular among african-americans, latinos and asian americans and the republicans want to repeal it, still. >> and eugene is right. it goes back to the central problem in the autopsy. and that is, this is, they're approaching this as a marketing problem. and that somehow if we change the color of the cereal box, that inside the cereal will taste much better and sell better. this isn't about hiring more walmart greeters, right? this is about having them come into communities with a different message. that's what's going to be fundamentally hard. look, i -- took part in a really long, tough primary in 2007 and 2008 with hillary clinton. it went the dista
and south carolina is president obama's pick for labor secretary. one republican is already promising a confirmation fight. tom perez is labor secretary he heads the justice department civil rights division. louisiana senator david vittert said today he will block the nomination because of how the department enforce its state's voting rights laws. he he claims the feds were more interested in registering welfare recipients than removing ineligible voters from the roles. white house says he is enormously qualified be labor secretary. a week after judge shot down plans to control sugary soda sizes. today the mayor announced a proposal that would require stores to keep all toe tobacco products out of sight. it's reportedly an attempt to cut underaged smoking and tobacco use. business owners would have to keep all of it in a drawer or something or under the counter, behind a curtain. no other city or state has such law although canada and some european nations do. remember, the mayor has already spearheaded moves to ban smoking in public places as well as bans on transfats and that soda t
as the next secretary of labor. some republican opposition is expected when president obama nominates perez today. if confirmed by the senate, perez, who has been head of the justice department's civil rights division for 3½ years, would take over the labor department as obama undertakes several worker- oriented initiatives, including an overhaul of immigration laws and an increase in the minimum wage. two star high school football players from ohio are heading to a juvenile jail. ♪ ♪ yeeeowwww! hot mess hot mess ♪ your'e a hot kind of love you set me on fire you spice up my night feed my every desire ♪ jack's one hit wonder is now a burger. the hot mess is loaded with spicy jalapenos, onion rings and gooey pepper jack cheese. ♪ your'e a-a hot mess and that's how i met your mom. ♪ hot mess with colgate optic white toothpaste. it whitens over 2 shades more than a leading whitening toothpaste. and try colgate optic white mouthwash. to whiten more than 3 shades, use the whole whitening line, from colgate optic white. the two teenagers -- 17- year-old "trent mays" and 16-year-old
with a proposed solution. if obama does it, it won't happen. but if some republicans start the conversation and make the first proposal, that's the only way we're going to have not only the conversation you're calling for, but action on change. >> and i totally agree with that. >> so why can't we get the republican party to see what you have been talking about? >> i think basically the republican party has reached the conclusion themselves that they are appealing to the dismissive wing of their own base. i mean, it's actually quite remarkable when you look back over the history of this. i mean, remember the figure in the us senate who repeatedly put forward the nation's best and most sophisticated answers to the climate challenge for many years was senator john mccain. the nominee of the republican party was the premier architect of responding to climate change. how far things have changed in the past four years where we ended up in the primaries of -- the republican primaries of 2012, and we found that all of them, with the one exception of john huntsman, were calling into question the bas
on this with the panel. thank you. while the g.o.p. talks rebranding, president obama has been making adjustments, too. the white house says the president's recent outreach to republicans, which many reporters and columnist branded with a cern name continues. >> is the charm offensive over? >> absolutely not. the president will continue to engage. i mean the president will continue to engage with members of congress. the fact of the matter is there are republicans who go along with the notion supported by the vast majority of the american people, including the majority of self-identified republicans that we can move forward on deficit reduction in a balanced way. >> bret: senior political analyst brit hume in miami tonight with thoughts on the charm offensive. good evening, you look sun-shiney in miami. >> life is good here, bret. you should come. i hope you will be here soon. >> bret:ly indeed. what do you think of the charm offensive? >> well, it was a remarkably sudden conversion by the president from an attitude of, you know, up yours. i don't need you, to i want to get together to talk with all o
republicans who go back to voter intimidation cases in 2008 of barack obama when members of the black panther party were outside polling places. and critics claim the obama administration has not been efficient in pursuing and prosecuting cases of that sort. and suggest that there continue to be these racial and political hostilities in the department that went back before even he was there. they began in the bush administration but the suggestion is he didn't do enough when he took overt civil rights department. >> peter, the president about to leave the white house to go to israel tomorrow for the first time as president. and he had said in the past that he only wanted to visit the country if there was something concrete to accomplish here. so is there, or is this more about optics? >> well are there's a lot concrete to accomplish. it's unlikely any of it will be accomplished during this trip. he's only on the ground in israel 48 hours. he will make stops in the west bank. he'll first visit with benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister of israel, and then go to the west bank to have meetings
, hillary clinton, today took the public step that we have seen from president obama, from vice president biden and even from republican senator rob portman. clinton saying that equality for lgbt americans includes the right to marry. joining me now for our daily fix, ruth marcus, editorial columnist for the "washington post." we've seen this evolution and clearly, hillary clinton as secretary clinton was forward-leaning as far as spousal benefits, partner benefits at the state department. but this is is a clear an obvious step. what she signaling? >> i think what she's signaling is what we've, the other folks that you've mentioned, is that support for gay marriage is now, pardon the phrase, going to be a litmus test in the democratic party. i'm almost thinking about how secretary clinton, when she was candidate clinton, had to explain why she voted for the war and express her views on the war. candidates are now going to be explaining why they weren't for gay marriage earlier and who would have ever, i'm not criticizing her. i think it's a terrific development. but whoever would have tho
. the republicans did not have a republican -- republican-leaning voters did not have the a comparative balance of the enthusiasm that they had in the 2010 -- in another year. that was absent. i do not believe the obama campaign actually met their numbers. that is to say, i do not thing they turned out as many numbers as would be necessary to win, but they turned out as many people as ended up being needed to win, including florida. one of the interesting things about 2012 is at the presidential level, the numbers look a fair amount like 2008, particularly in the target states, reflecting the compared to the advantage that the obama campaign had in turnout. -- reflecting the comparative advantage that the obama campaign had in turnout. somelican managed to boot senate races that they should have won, as they did in 2010, but they maintained, by in large, the house of representatives, losing only eight seats, and their position was very strong. that position that they build up in 2010. they lost legislatures in maine and minnesota but by and large kept legislatures that they had 2010 and had the

, the fact of the matter is, obama has been to this -- about $6 trillion during his watch and so have the republicans in the house. maybe not the first two years but the rest. what have they done? i look at my stumps that's what they're supposed to look at -- look at my constitution. all tax bills come out of the house of representatives. all of them. then they say they don't have any power? when boehner announces we're not going to shut down the government, when it was shut down for three weeks when newt gingrich was trying to control bill clinton and his spending, and he is giving up his card. when boehner says we don't have an immediate dead crisis he is giving up his cards. he doesn't want to actually do something about this but likes being speaker. >> neil: they're looking at the next -- the end of this month we're facing yet another potential crisis. they're going to argue that the government could shut down. and this is their attempt to say, we won't brick -- bring it to that pranksmanship because we don't want it on our door step we caused it. but it's going to boomerang on th
point when it came time to choose a secretary of defense barack obama demonstrated lincoln-esque team rivalling by choosing former nebraska senator chuck haaag -- hagge -- hagel.

in the republican party, for example, calling president obama a socialist, the whole birther movement and embrace of donald trump during the presidential election, doesn't that need to end if african-americans are going to feel welcome in the tent? >> you're absolutely correct, carol. we're not here to make excuses. you are absolutely correct that tone matters. we've heard that throughout your listening sessions around the country with african-americans, with asians, with hispanic. we need to do a better job in communicating and controlling that tone and as a national party we'll do that. state parties will do that. and i think i'm excited about where we go from here. >> do you think that republicans will reject people like donald trump because he still embraces the birther issue. >> that gets back to reagan 11th commandment. we can agree on 80% of the things. he's not our 20% enemy. we need everyone. we have a big tent. we want to welcome everyone in. as a party we're the ones that should be leading and we should set that tone and we will do that in our activity. >> if donald trump said what he
that president obama wants but puts that money in the hands of those middle earners who are burdened by the social security payroll tax. this is an idea that is gaining a lot of currency among republicans but very difficult for patty murray and the obama administration to follow up on. >> well, but it fits in with what the president wants which is to give more tax relief to the middle class. i simply have to say as i always do, that though is something that flies in the face of what a lot of economists and former president clinton say have to happen over the long term which is taxes need to go up on the middle class. >> the president has been questioned about fairness and saying if you look at sort of the way that dow is going, you look at sort of the incredible profits on corporations. they're not paying their fair share. but to go back to the issue at hand, i really think the speaker -- >> how do you define fair, cornell? if you tax 100%, you don't get rid of the debt problem. so what is fair? >> i think it is a visceral main street issue. when working americans are paying sort of
standard." obama, i don't think so. but the people in politics read it. particularly republicans. not just elected officials but consultants, strategists, people in government and so on read it. and then we have, we make sure that we have a great readership in the journalistic community in washington. i mean, about 400 copies on the weekend on sunday. they get one at home. and which if you get one on sunday, right, they have a lot better chance of reading it than they would if they get it in the office on monday when they are flooded with other things. so you have the political community, the journalistic community and the academic community. being at the new republic, i remember how, how widely read the new republic was in the academic community. of course, they did not like my stuff. i get letters saying why are you there? at the conservative academic community is a lot smaller, but we circulate among them, too. when you have that great readership, it helps. >> in the wikipedia site -- it talks that he possibly bought this for $1 million from rupert murdoch. why did he not want to feel?

report. >> thanks. >> we have msnbc contributor perry macon and ben labolt the former obama press secretary for the 2012 campaign. and contributor and republican strategic susan del percio. i want to start with the breaking news at the back end of the last hour regarding hillary clinton coming out for marriage equality in a video that's just breen leased on the human rights campaign website. take a listen to part of it. >> a little over a year ago in geneva, i told the nations of the world that gay rights are human rights. and human rights are gay rights. and that the united states would be a leader in defending those rights. now, there were some countries that did not want to hear that. but i believe america is at its best. when we champion the freedom and dignity of every human being. >> ben, i want to start with you, your reaction with this. let's remind everybody that the clintons are going in order here with the former president asking the supreme court to strike down doma. and now on the heels that, hillary clinton coming out in support of marriage equality. >> well that's r
we get to the news live at 5:30 a.m. here at 30 rock in new york city. president obama's renewed push for a grand bargain may be showing some early signs of paying off, at least with one top republican. senator bob corker of tennessee says he could envision raising tax revenue if democrats embrace big changes to medicare and social security. corker's position on sunday puts him at odds with other members of his party including house speaker john boehner who's ruling out the prospect of any new taxes. >> i think there by the way is a chance on a deal. i know the president is saying the right things and we have an opportunity over the next four to five months. i think republicans, if they saw true entitlement reform, would be glad to look at tax reform that generates additional revenues and that doesn't mean increasing rates, that means closing loopholes. it also means arranging our tax system so that we have economic growth. >> i don't know whether we can come to a big agreement. if we do, it will be between the two parties on capitol hill. the president got his tax hikes on january th

off the top of this segment that this is sort of bad pursuit for republicans. this is not a winning argument for republicans to make. putting all of that aside, the politics, i always think, and it is worth pointing out this was adopted in 2004 before obama. this was not a response to president obama in arizona. so i think it is worth putting that aside. i always find it interesting and sort of telling when legislators are activists try to go around enforcing existing law. and the reason for that are political and potentially even cultural. but for example, on this one, the requirement, the existing laws require u.s. citizenship in the case of voting in any federal election. requiring proof of that is the objection, the contention here. i'm not sure that we should be trying to go around existing law and finding out ways to say, you don't have to prove it. we'll take you on your word. if it is hard for someone to prove, let's make it easier. let's fix the problem that way so that both sides are satisfied. say, okay, we don't want to put a single group out of order here and force then
obama, you lied. >> i think it's about dignity and respect. >> so this go-round, he's got the rifle, i've got the rack. >>> we begin with the republican party facing a serious case of the mondays. after a weekend carouse iing at cpac, no doubt downing a few in honor of st. patrick, today came the reckoning with the revelation of their own autopsy on what went badly wrong in 2012. this morning, it fell to rnc chair, reince priebus to give his party an uncompromising look in the rearview mirror. >> our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we weren't inclusive. we were behind in both data and digital. and our primary and debate process needed improvement. >> yes, mr. priebus presided over the party for all of that and he remains in charge for the release of the savage and scolding document, "the growth and opportunity project." gop. get it? a blistering report based on 52,000 voter contacts. and the respondents apparently didn't mince their words. >> focus groups described our party as narrow minded. out of touch. and, quote, stuffy old men. >> by the way, it's reince prieb
is right. when the republicans have a president, they follow the leader. i think that's why you're seeing success of governors in the state. they've the boss. >> right now president obama has the whip hand and he's the executive. he's using it more effective than i've seen in the past. regarding governors, the thing i don't like about this is shorter primary process and fewer debates. i couldn't like that because i want everyone to have a shot at this. if you can't raise that money right upfront, you should still have a shot. nobody thought barack obama could beat hillary clinton and he did. we had a lot of debates about this one. it wasn't romney. he outlasted everybody. i think that process issue is important. last question. what about old fashioned free enterprise? free markets? lower tax rates? limited government. does that not play any more? >> it does, but the sides chose on that. it's the 10 million undecided. they vote for the brand they think is better looking or speaks better. he's a terrible president but amazing brand. >> he's a great speaker. you get him from the teleprompter
obamacare, which was the central issue the last campaign where you remember president obama was re-elected, the senate went even more democratic, and the house democrats gained seats and won over a million more votes than the republicans. normal people would think that the obamacare issue might be settled. does anybody realistically think it's going away any time soon? the republican fantasy budget reduces taxes dramatically without a hint of how it would be possible. without exploding the deficit or dramatically raising taxes on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republ
